Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth (aka Fossil shell flour) which comes from an extremely pure fresh water deposit of the diatom Aulacoseira from a deposit created in the Miocene epoch.Why is this diatom so special? Its shell is made of amorphous silica. Its shape and hardness are important to how it works. Its hardness keeps it from dissolving in liquid. The holes along the diatom's wall allow it to absorb moisture, hence its commonly use as an anti-caking agent.

The color of this DE is almost pure white and consists of 89% (and sometimes more) Silicon Dioxide plus 28 trace minerals which means more diatom surface area is available. More diatom area means greater absorptive capacity and more improvement in the mixability and flowability when used in animal feed. It does not swell nor absorb nutrients and thus poses no long term hazard when used as an anti-caking agent in animal's feed. Darker colored DE often contains an excess of a particular mineral such as iron or a high percentage of clay.
